Comments Total time 2:13:40 +. Timings are based on the AUD tape supplemented by the SBD. The AUD tape was mastered by Harry Ely. This tape cuts in during the "New Speedway Boogie Jam," which sounds like Bobby playing the comp to this song over & over while the audience claps along and the equipment crew tries to get the rest of the band up & running. After 4:15 this cuts to another couple minutes of tuning, soundcheck activity and bitching about the sound system. The show proper finally kicks in with Casey Jones, though the circulating SBD only starts with Big Boy Pete. The circulating AUD is missing Me And My Uncle and I'm A King Bee, but they appear on the SBD. On the AUD tape China Cat cuts in at "kimono like a crazy-quilt star gown," and the 2nd stanza of Rider is clipped. These defects aside, AUD tape is quite a decent job of audience recording. The circulating SBD breaks off after Uncle John's Band. It's possible that It's All Over Now, Baby Blue was the conclusion of the show. Commander Cody was also on the bill.
